They must have sold enough of the $80 packs with Blue Reflection to make a second go at this model. Absolutely insane. I swear KT/Gust are just about the worst when it comes to DLC pricing models now rivaled by Arksys. Dead or Alive 5 got a pass from me on their structure but I always considered it the Train Simulator of fighting games.

At least they aren't locking the content behind loot boxes

Anyone enjoying Dragonball Fighterz Beta?

I got a few matches in and it's not bad. Definitely not a Day 1 purchase for me, but I'll pick it up when the price drops. The visuals are impressive, and I do like that it captures the anime look. Not really digging the combat all that much though.

 

I'll take Budokai Tenkaichi 3 or Raging Blast 2 over any of these newer DBZ games.

So when's the LWA game gonna be up for pre-order? I could have sworn the product page on Bandai Namco said Feb, but no stores have it up for preorder, not even Amazon or Best Buy.

IIRC that game is digital-only in NA.

Sad. Nights of Azure 2 and Atelier Firis had reasonable DLC that was affordable and offered worthwhile content.

I love it. This is the DBZ game that I’ve wanted for a while now. I’m not going to get into the price of dlc and what not, that is beating a dead horse on overpriced nonsense. But the actual gameplay is fantastic.

Oh, I love it and I’m straight trash. Seriously, raging dumpster fire. But it’s a blast even when I’m losing. So that’s saying something for me.

Dissidia on the other hand. Yeah....no thanks....😑

Final Fantasy XV Royal Edition Announcement Trailer

Is anyone even still playing this? Every time I see something new about it, I'm reminded about how disappointing and awful the game was. Still baffled by all the high review scores it got when it came out. At least PC players can now experience this garbage in 4K.

*Raises hand* - I for one thought the base game for FFXV was fantastic and I was planning on hitting the episodes during the summer lull. Is the DLC bad? I’ve only heard good things about the quality of it.

I've been waiting for the PC version, so the goofy assed release schedule hasn't bothered me for XV yet. They show no signs of slowing down, though. They're redoing sections of the game, adding new game mechanics, extra content throughout, at the end, etc. Like, who wants to play a freaking JRPG like that? If I had to sit down and list what I think is the worst possible way to experience a JRPG, everything about what they've done with XV would have to be it. I'll jump on it when they actually stop. 

 

On the flip side, Dragon Quest XI, a complete game, looks beyond fantastic, and I want to play that straight away. It's funny to see the division between the DQ and FF teams over at ol' SE.

It's just the core game on the disk, you have to redeem a voucher for all of the DLC.

They get progressively better as you go. Gladio's was fine. Prompto's was better. Ignis was pretty damn good. I didn't get into the multiplayer content much. I thought it was too grindy relative to the content and if I am going to play a multiplayer FF, playing FFXIV is the better option (yes the MMO feels less grindy by comparison).

I understand, I doubt I’d spend much time with comerades. I have MHW coming for my grind. Good to know about the episodes, thanks.

Huh, I definitely can see why someone could truly hate this design choice. I guess I see the initial release as a full and fun game, improvements and additions are just bonuses for me. But I really can understand where you’re coming from and we both agree on DQXI looking fantastic. 👍

I am very seriously considering selling my current PS4 Pro, which is in perfect shape with no issues, to get the Monster Hunter Pro. What's wrong with me? But it's pretty!

Right there with ya. I have the two MH 3DS XLs, so I think I actually 'have' to get this, too, right? Haha

Totally! The only downside is the XL's are blue and the PS4 is black / red :P

Free weekly PSN junk:

 

Layers of Fear

PS4

- The Gallery Theme

 

Innerspace

PS4

- The Art of Flight Theme

 

 

There weren't any thread related things, so I went ahead and listed those two for the hell of it. No specialized sales this week either it looks like. The Monster Hunter Beta will become available to preload tomorrow, the 17th. The beta lasts from the 18th (9PM EST / 6PM PST) to the 21st (9PM EST / 6PM PST) and includes a new, fourth hunt that has a higher difficulty than the rest. If you still have the previous beta downloaded, you do not need to re-download the client.
